  • Nebraska's Democrat Party- "Welcome Baskets" w/Voter Registration Cards for Refugees

    "State Sen. John Murante of Gretna is urging 'corrective action' to ensure noncitizens don't register to vote using forms Nebraska Democrats included in refugee welcome baskets this month.

    His comments came after state Democratic Party Chairwoman Jane Kleeb shared video on social media showing envelopes with voter registration forms tucked into a pile of welcome baskets the party collected during a leadership meeting in Lincoln March 16....

    ....the state has no screening system to ensure those who register are citizens....

    'Any ballot that is cast illegally cancels out the ballot of a person who is legally entitled to vote,' Murante said...."

    -and that's the aim of the Democrat party - to effectively disfranchise political enemies by cancelling out their votes with illegal votes.

    The baskets were donated to two refugee resettlement agencies, Lutheran Family Services of Nebraska and the Refugee Empowerment Center.

    Both organizations have said they removed the registration forms and other political materials before sharing other items from the baskets.
    Big yawn of a story.

    “To talk of many things:
    Of shoes—and ships—and sealing-wax—
    Of cabbages—and kings—
    And why the sea is boiling hot—
    And whether pigs have wings.”

      The materials should never have been included.

        Exactly!

        The only "yawn" part here is that Democrats regularly try to abuse "the system" to gain power, this shenanigan is SOP.

          That's nothing. The vote of one Wyoming voter cancels the votes of 3 to 4 Californian voters, or New York voters, or Florida voters.

            On the other hand, the presence of millions of illegals in California gives that state as much as six (6) extra electoral college votes, even if not one of them votes. That means illegal immigrants in California effectively negate the vote of Wyoming in its entirety.
            In terms of national elections, the popular vote by state is less important than the electoral vote. We are a Republic not a direct democracy. We as a nation don't want California and New York making all the decisions for the direction of the nation. We want input from low population states and to make those state's views meaningful.
            A direct democracy, where only the popular vote matters, gives all the power to a handful of states with large populations. Those with low populations, like Wyoming, become meaningless politically.

            But, none of that changes that because the US Census includes illegal immigrants in its population count, states with large illegal immigrant populations get more representation even though those represented are neither citizens or have a legal right to be present to be represented. It only becomes more egregious when a state, like California, encourages illegal immigration, particularly when its political leadership recognizes that as a means to increase their political power.

              Hers the letter of the law.

              1907. Title 8, U.S.C. 1324(a) Offenses

              Title 8, U.S.C. § 1324(a) defines several distinct offenses related to aliens. Subsection 1324(a)(1)(i)-(v) prohibits alien smuggling, domestic transportation of unauthorized aliens, concealing or harboring unauthorized aliens, encouraging or inducing unauthorized aliens to enter the United States, and engaging in a conspiracy or aiding and abetting any of the preceding acts. Subsection 1324(a)(2) prohibits bringing or attempting to bring unauthorized aliens to the United States in any manner whatsoever, even at a designated port of entry. Subsection 1324(a)(3).
              Alien Smuggling -- Subsection 1324(a)(1)(A)(i) makes it an offense for any person who -- knowing that a person is an alien, to bring to or attempts to bring to the United States in any manner whatsoever such person at a place other than a designated port of entry or place other than as designated by the Commissioner, regardless of whether such alien has received prior official authorization to come to, enter, or reside in the United States and regardless of any future official action which may be taken with respect to such alien.
              Domestic Transporting -- Subsection 1324(a)(1)(A)(ii) makes it an offense for any person who -- knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that an alien has come to, entered, or remains in the United States in violation of law, transports, or moves or attempts to transport or move such alien within the United States by means of transportation or otherwise, in furtherance of such violation of law.
              Harboring -- Subsection 1324(a)(1)(A)(iii) makes it an offense for any person who -- knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that an alien has come to, entered, or remains in the United States in violation of law, conceals harbors, or shields from detection, or attempts to conceal, harbor, or shield from detection, such alien in any place, including any building or any means of transportation.
              Encouraging/Inducing -- Subsection 1324(a)(1)(A)(iv) makes it an offense for any person who -- encourages or induces an alien to come to, enter, or reside in the United States, knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that such coming to, entry, or residence is or will be in violation of law.
              Conspiracy/Aiding or Abetting -- Subsection 1324(a)(1)(A)(v) expressly makes it an offense to engage in a conspiracy to commit or aid or abet the commission of the foregoing offenses.
              Bringing Aliens to the United States -- Subsection 1324(a)(2) makes it an offense for any person who -- knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that an alien has not received prior authorization to come to, enter, or reside in the United States, to bring to or attempts to bring to the United States in any manner whatsoever, such alien, regardless of any official action which may later be taken with respect to such alien.
              The Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act (IIRIRA), enacted on September 30, 1996, added a new 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(3)(A) which makes it an offense for any person, during any 12-month period, to knowingly hire at least 10 individuals with actual knowledge that these individuals are unauthorized aliens. See this Manual at 1908 (unlawful employment of aliens).
              Unit of Prosecution -- With regard to offenses defined in subsections 1324(a)(1)(A)(i)-(v), (alien smuggling, domestic transporting, harboring, encouraging/inducing, or conspiracy/aiding or abetting) each alien with respect to whom a violation occurs constitutes a unit of prosecution. Prior to enactment of the IIRIRA, the unit of prosecution for violations of 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(2) was each transaction, regardless of the number of aliens involved. However, the unit of prosecution is now based on each alien in respect to whom a violation occurs.
              Knowledge -- Prosecutions for alien smuggling, 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(1)(A)(i) require proof that defendant knew that the person brought to the United States was an alien. With regard to the other violations in 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a), proof of knowledge or reckless disregard of alienage is sufficient.
              Penalties -- The basic statutory maximum penalty for violating 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(1)(i) and (v)(I) (alien smuggling and conspiracy) is a fine under title 18, imprisonment for not more than 10 years, or both. With regard to violations of 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(1)(ii)-(iv) and (v)(ii), domestic transportation, harboring, encouraging/inducing, or aiding/abetting, the basic statutory maximum term of imprisonment is 5 years, unless the offense was committed for commercial advantage or private financial gain, in which case the maximum term of imprisonment is 10 years. In addition, significant enhanced penalties are provided for in violations of 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(1) involving serious bodily injury or placing life in jeopardy. Moreover, if the violation results in the death of any person, the defendant may be punished by death or by imprisonment for any term of years. The basic penalty for a violation of subsection 1324(a)(2) is a fine under title 18, imprisonment for not more than one year, or both, 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(2)(A). Enhanced penalties are provided for violations involving bringing in criminal aliens, 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(2)(B)(i), offenses done for commercial advantage or private financial gain, 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(2)(B)(ii), and violations where the alien is not presented to an immigration officer immediately upon arrival, 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(2)(B)(iii). A mandatory minimum three year term of imprisonment applies to first or second violations of § 1324(a)(2)(B)(i) or (B)(ii). Further enhanced punishment is provided for third or subsequent offenses.
              COMMENT: Further discussion of offenses defined in 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a) is set forth in Chapter 3 of Immigration Law, published as part of the Office of Legal Education's Litigation Series, and as part of the USABook computer library.
              [cited in USAM 9-73.100]

                What would Thomas Jackson, a devout Christian and famous CSA General...have to say about refugees...is what you should ask yourself Border Ruffian.

                Many Confederate army members were dedicated Christians...some did oppose slavery as we know..and if these Christians were around today they would welcome refugees and they would go even further...no doubt placing Bibles in the welcome baskets.

                    Why are people always mentioning all the illegals in CA but don't seem concerned with the millions in AZ, NM and TX, among other states?

                        They do, depends on the Republican in question; but the Democrats use it as part of party policy. As a party, they can't do any single thing honestly, because if they did, they would never win.

                          I mention those other states along with others like Virginia and Oklahoma, among others. But, in Arizona, except for stuff Obama did to loosen restrictions on illegals, and the constant lawsuits by sympathizers of illegal immigration, Arizona is the antithesis of California. Arizona does everything it can to discourage illegals living there.

                          You can't get a driver's license. You pay out of state for college, even "Dreamers" under Obama's program do. Public schools require proof of citizenship and residence. You name it, Arizona is trying to do it when it comes to ending illegals living in the state.
